WASHINGTON (AP) — In a recent closed-door meeting with leaders of the agency’s Counterterrorism Center, the CIA’s No. 2 official made it clear that the fight against al-Qaeda and other extremist groups will remain a priority – but that the agency’s money and resources would focus increasingly on China.
The CIA drone attack that killed the leader of al-Qaeda showed that the fight against terrorism is not an afterthought. But that hasn’t changed the message that the agency’s deputy director, David Cohen, delivered at that meeting a few weeks earlier: while the United States will continue to pursue terrorists, the top priority is to try to better understand and counter Beijing.
